LINCOLN, RI – Stations 4, 5, 3, Rescue 4, and Chief 4 were alerted of a possible structure fire at 37 North Union Street just after 1100 on January 28, 2010. Engine 4 arrived to find smoke showing from the second floor of a 30x50 2.5 sty wood frame occupied dwelling. An occupant was complaining of smoke inhalation and was treated by Rescue 4 on scene, but not transported. Engine 4 parked at the side 1-4 corner to make room for Ladder 51 to set their stick to the roof line to vent if needed. Firefighters stretched in a 1 ¾ “attack line to the side 4 entry way and made their way to the second floor. The interior officer reported “Collyers Mansion Conditions” in the dwelling as they stretched in. A 4” LDH feeder line was laid in from Grove Street at the corner of North Union Street to Engine 4. Ladder 51’s crew made their way to the ridge line to vent if necessary. Engine 31’s crew backed up the first line to the second floor. A Captain from Ladder 51 fell on scene requiring transport to a local ER for a wrist injury. Squad 21 responded as the FAST Team and set up on side 1 with command. The bulk of the fire was contained to the second floor on the side 1-4 corner. The RI Fire Marshal’s Office assisted in cause and investigation.
